An Almost Perfect Holiday is a warm and witty story of friendship, family and hope, by the Sunday Times bestseller Lucy Diamond.
The holidays are here, and down in Cornwall Lorna’s cottages are fully booked. The sun loungers are lined up beside the swimming pool, the sky is blue and a new set of arrivals are on their way . . .
Em’s planned the perfect break with her teenagers plus her new boyfriend, George . . . but now his difficult six-year-old is coming too. Will their romance survive the realities of parenthood?
Maggie’s hoping a seaside holiday will bring her and her daughter closer together, but when her ex makes a surprise reappearance, it changes everything. Can she trust the man who broke her heart?
Olivia has escaped the domestic grind, only for the past to catch up with her. Maybe the time has come to confess all – if she can find the courage . . .
Meanwhile, the teenagers are running wild and love is in the air. With friendship, heartache and secrets in the mix, will this holiday turn out to be a scorcher – or simply too hot to handle?
Optimistic, heartwarming, and charming!
An Almost Perfect Holiday is a lovely, lighthearted tale that introduces you to three unique women, all at different stages of their lives, who after spending a not so relaxing vacation at the same holiday resort each depart with a little more hope, sense of self-worth, contentment, and stronger bonds with those they love.
The prose is emotive and sweet. The characters are multifaceted, relatable, and endearing. And the plot is a delightfully inspiring tale about life, loss, family, secrets, motherhood, self-discovery, moving on, taking chances, and finding happiness.
Overall, An Almost Perfect Holiday is an amusing, tender, heartfelt tale by Diamond that is entertaining, satisfying, and a real summer treat.
